comment How to protect PDF file from indexing?
that's not what I'm saying.. I meant we should not block pdf files using robots.txt. Robots meta tags and X-Robots-Tag HTTP headers are discovered when a URL is crawled. If you block a page through robots.txt, then the spider would not have a chance to see the X-Robots-Tag. If the spider do not see the X-Robots-Tag, it will list the url in search results as long as there are external links to that URL. In other words, all files blocked by robots.txt are list-able in search results. See webmasters.stackexchange.com/a/49124/7654

comment is there any way to change host for a website without suffering from downtime?
but that's a problem. my old host doesn't allow me to connect to my new DB. so my data is at 2 places and people querying the data will be feeling like the data is screwed up (since they aren't interconnected). what solutions do you recommend?

@JohnFx yes i can't afford to have people writing to both old and new DBs during the transition. my old host doesn't allow me to connect to my new DB. what other tricks can i employ to make sure everything is proper?
